Carus in detail

Statement for the location in Germany

Germany draws its economic strength from a very high level of education compared with other countries. This knowledge and nearly two centuries of business experience are the essential fundations for the technology-based and highly automated production of innovative and sustainable LED illuminants from Carus. The location in Germany, a center for technological innovation, in combination with the know-how of our developers, are critical factors of success for the long-term based design of sustainable and innovative products.

Minimising transport – regional production avoids emissions

Sustainability throughout the entire production chain is Carus’ top priority. Regional production significantly promotes the reduction of industrial emissions. Carus products made in Germany are not unnecessarily transported around the world. Efficient production processes and optimized supply chains hold considerable innovative potential for improving environmental protection. This idea is lived by our employees and can be found in every single Carus LED lamp.

Responsibility for our employees

700 people work for Carus and Seidel in the corporate association. Taking responsibility for each other is part of our own corporate culture.

No pollutants – in the product or the production

No to mercury, adhesives or other harmful substances! Carus LED lamps are developed with a clear vision in mind: neither does the product contain nor the production process make use of harmful or questionable substances. Carus develops and produces according to the highest quality standards as well as regular quality assurance checks. This protects customers, employees and the region. Technically, this approach also improves the product. The lamp components are not glued together, thus the temperature management of Carus LED lamps is significantly improved due to their construction, and in a sustainable manner.

Innovative technology

The Carus LED lamps are real product innovations. The specially developed construction method completely eliminates the need for unhealthy adhesives, both in the product and in the production. The material input has also been significantly reduced by up to 65%. As a result, Carus LED lamps are not only particularly smart, but also guaranteed sustainable due to their material efficiency.

Developing high-tech know-how – creating jobs

Carus lamps are manufactured by long-time employees in a high-tech environment. Without the very well trained employees at the Marburg locations, the first-class LED lamps and the success of the company would be inconceivable. The new production has already created 50 additional jobs in the company. A number that will continue to grow. The People living there are the most important part of a strong region. A deeper sense of solidarity, for Carus, provides ideal conditions to establish LED lamps from Central Hesse in the strong global competition in a sustainable, long-term and successful manner.
